    Nia Lustig-Ellison and Zoey Ericson were just accepted to the DAJA Program.  The Justice Academy is offered to juniors and seniors interested in learning more about law, justice, social justice and the courts.  During the summer, each DAJA Intern is placed at a paid internship at either a government agency, private law office, police department, nonprofit organization focused on social justice, or an office of an elected official.  Students gain hands-on work experience through their internship placements.  Congratulations Nia and Zoe!
